Procedure for Payment of Family Pension to Handicapped Children

Where the names of eligible children have not been mentioned in PPO for various reasons like the pension was sanctioned prior to 1-1-1990 or the child is a post–retiral one or post-retiral manifestation of disability of the child, the pensioner, if he so desires, can furnish a list of eligible children to the Pension Sanctioning Authority, inter alia, indicating whether any child is handicapped or not.

The receipt of this list may be acknowledged by the pension sanctioning authority, mentioning the details of the eligible children taken on record.

This acknowledgement may be preserved by the members of the family of the pensioner for production at the time of submission of claim for family pension in their own turn to the Pension Sanctioning Authority.

In case of guardian, the responsibility of producing this acknowledgement will, however, not be a pre-condition to the processing of claims for family pension.
